The Grand Rapids Griffins and Farm Bureau Insurance are teaming up to provide a media room makeover for one deserving elementary or middle school in Kent ISD.
The inaugural Media Room Makeover contest offers eligible schools the opportunity to submit their applications online between now and April 1, 2015 at griffinshockey.com/mediaroommakeover. Staff simply answers the question “Why does your school need a media room makeover?” and provides a photo of their existing media room, computer lab or library. Applicationsmay be submitted by school principals, administrators or teachers.
Depending on the winning school’s needs, the media room makeover could consist of a variety of new resources such as computer hardware, software, books, furniture, paint, carpet and light construction, with a value ranging from a minimum of $5,000 to as much as $15,000.
Following the application deadline on April 1, all entries will be reviewed by the Griffins and Farm Bureau Insurance and narrowed to a pool of three finalist schools. Each finalist will receive a site visit as part of the final selection. The Griffins and Farm Bureau will choose the winning school by April 30, assist school officials in the makeover of the school’s media room this summer, then host a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the start of the new school year in August or September.
Official rules and regulations of the contest are available here .
